My Neighbor's Dog Bit My Child. What Should I Do?

Animal bites are suffered by half of all Americans in their lifetime

  • Get medical attention- the sooner your child is seen, the better outcome will be.
  • Speak with the neighbors- find out if the dog is it up to date on all of its shots?  Has the dog had any prior attacks on other dogs or people?
  • Find any witnesses who may have seen what happened
  • Keep written documentation of the attack, the treatment, and any statements made by the owners or witnesses.
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible so that they can investigate your claim
